This paper describes the design and simulation, using the SONNET tool, of a new inductor structure with crossed segments (cross). In order to compare, the new and conventional rectangular inductors were designed using a 0.35 mum CMOS technology. To make a fair comparison we fixed the segment width and spacing to 10 mum. After the design, the cross inductor(More)
Phase Noise performance of LC VCOs is strongly dependent on the Quality Factor of the Inductors. As known, low cost CMOS technologies, the on-chip inductors have low quality factors compared to external inductors. But, using external inductors connected by traditional bonding technologies limits the integration capacity. To implement high performance RF(More)
